Austin Peay State University Lady GovsClarksville, TN – As the calendar turns to October the sounds in the Dunn Center turn increasingly to the sound of squeaking shoes and balls bouncing off the hardwood. That sound will increased this weekend as Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team begins its preseason practice schedule with a 5:00pm, Sunday practice.

This is the second season for a redefined practice rule approved by the NCAA. Beginning last season, women’s teams were permitted to start practices 40 days prior to their first regular-season contest. Within that window, a team can hold 30 team practices, meaning a schedule of five practice days per week with two days off. The extended window did not provide any additional practice opportunities but allowed women’s teams more flexibility to work around class schedules.
